. >>steve: last night barack obama sat down with hillary rodham clinton whose official last day as secretary of state is this friday. why exactly did they sit down? the interview was awkward. they were giddy saying goodbye. and right at the top steve kroft said they only gave us 30 minutes which means there's not going to be real news, which there wasn't. >>brian: i think for some reason they didn't dig into anything at all. i would like to know did she pass out and hit her head? was she pushed? how did she hit her head and get a concussion? >>steve: several ways. she said -- quote -- "i still have lingering effects from falling on my head." >>brian: there was no follow-up. >>steve: you're right. >>gretchen: she was injured. she had a concussion. >>steve: that is one of the questions i have. how did you fall on your head? >>gretchen: she passed out i think is the story. to me, 30 minutes is plenty of time -- well, plenty of time to make news in 30 minutes. for me, this was more, the first thing that came to my mind when i saw the two of them together is barack obama is going to endorse hilla
was beaten. barack obama so empowered he forced republicans to back down on the debt ceiling and laid out a liberal agenda for his second term. the g.o.p. is out of favor with the young, minorities and women. not just at the ballot box. 49% of the nation now sees the republican party negatively. in the nbc news "wall street journal" poll only 26% positively. democrats doing far better with the net positive. hand wringing at the govep g.o.p. winter meeting. >> republicans talk policy and the democrats talk people. >> we've got to stop being the stupid party. >> louisiana governor bobby on g.o.p. senate's todd aiken and richard murdoch whose comments about remain angered women. >> no doubt we had a number of republicans say things that damaged the party. >> ledge islators want to change the winner take all electoral college that gave barack obama the win. one party member says forget that. they will recover. >> we got some cleaning up to do and making up to do and stretching out to do to bring some people in. >> today could be a start. >> the leaders say the likely republican party plan wil
will produce $3 trillion in additional tax revenue to pay down deficits and the debt. by the way, that is more than barack obama hopes to get through his massive tax increases. there's more revenue through growth than there ever could be through tax increases, which is one of the ways, by the way, when i'm debating those on the left and they say they're for revenue, i inevitably agree. i'm for revenue, too. the best way to have revenue, i say, sit down with those in the business sector and i say i'd love to double your taxes. they look at me and think, did i come to the wrong meeting? i say i'd love for next year your profits to double and you would happily write twice as big a tax check. up want to pay down our debt, get the economy roaring, get people back to work, 4% growth for a decade, 3 million people would rise out of poverty and be standing on their own feet. we need to be unapologetically the party of growth. we need to get back to growth and number two, we need to get back to opportunity. you know, if you could sum up what went wrong last election, i think it comes down to two words.
of president obama's gun package, but you say it all comes down to people's behavior. what do you mean? >> effective gun control has many facets to it. assault weapons ban is an element, significant symbolism. but the reality is you want to control behavior. the behavior of people. and that's what we did in the '90s here in new york. that's what i did in los angeles for seven years. crime is caused by people. you focus on their behavior and one of the behavioral changes is insuring that everybody that wants to buy a firearm has to basically submit to an i.d. check. that's form of behavior control. a lot of laws, a lot of tools are necessary, but effectively what you're doing is trying to control behavior. >> gretchen: you say that supersedes legislation. i just want to show some crime stats from new york when you were in charge here in the '90s. so murders fell 70%, car theft down 61. robbery down 55%. burglary down 53%. what did you do significantly about behavior? >> we had a very assertive police force, a very large police force. did the same thing in los angeles with a small police
that the university of chicago wants to buy that house, tear it down, and put up a parking lot. a parking lot -- a parking lot perhaps -- how ironic is this -- for the barack obama presidential library. >>brian: i blame the city of chicago. they should have made this a landmark. >>gretchen: they claim it is not a landmark, although they have delayed this process now a couple of times. the ronald reagan childhood home has survived now since december. they got a stay, so to speak, in january. it's still not exactly clear what is going to happen here, although the bulldozers are sitting nearby ready to go. what do you think about this story? should that happen or should it become a landmark? >>brian: or should the president say, listen, if my library, if i have to steam roll ronald reagan's house to build a library, i shouldn't have a library. maybe the president should decide. >>steve: it's not even a done deal yet. he hasn't picked a selection site, and the university of chicago is simply lobbying for it. e-mail us at friends at fox news. >>gretchen: how is this for a good use of your money? t
